A Wedding Day Emergency Kit for the Bride and Bridesmaids

my fair floral gallery

A Wedding Day Emergency Kit is something a bride or bridesmaids can’t afford to go without. Your wedding is supposed to be the most magical day of all because, let’s face it; you have been dreaming about this day since forever now. However, just to keep things real, it is imperative that you realize the possibility of and plan accordingly for common wedding mishaps.

Wedding disasters can occur unannounced, and if you have not prepared for them, you risk turning the most important day of your life into a lousy one. So, here is a list of a wedding day emergency kit which is a must-have for all the brides and bridesmaids out there.

1.   Tissues/Sanitizer

You can never have enough tissues! Make sure you have enough tissues to wipe off any makeup disasters. Moreover, you do not know who you would be shaking hands with or what objects you would be holding during the photo shoot. Therefore, keep a sanitizer handy.

2.   Snacks/Water

With all that stress around you, do not be surprised if you experience unexpected hunger pangs at the wrong time. Whether you are the bride or the bridesmaid, to manage such a situation, keep energy bars or snacks that are healthy along with a water bottle.

3.   OTC Medicines

Many brides suffer from headaches as a result of the stress they are feeling on the day of their wedding. Even if you are a bridesmaid, keeping track of the bride’s demands can make you forget about your needs. Make sure that you have paracetamol or ibuprofen in your emergency kit at all times.

4.   Perfume

Sweat is your enemy when you are all dressed up for a wedding. So, make sure you have a deodorant, perfume, or a body spray with you so that no one feels uncomfortable after hugging you.

5.   Sanitary Supplies

You never know when you or someone else in the bridal party might need a tampon. Having one in your kit will save your gorgeous silk dress and give you the protection you need.

6.   Charger for Your Phone

Running out of phone battery is probably the most commonly experienced situation at weddings. Having a phone charger will save millions of lives and will make your kit complete.

7. Cash

Cash is the last item that you should never forget to have on you on the day of your or your friend’s wedding cash. Without cash, you will be completely directionless in case of an emergency. So, create your own wedding day survival kit today and enjoy a care-free event.

Whether it is an anniversary party, baby shower, graduation event, or anything celebrating life’s milestone events in between, celebrating life’s milestone events are occasions that we all enjoy. These events create memories that last a lifetime, but can sometimes break the bank to achieve the vision you have for your event. For those who don’t want to empty their bank account, there are many options available to keep the cost of every life’s milestone event celebration within your budget.

Getting Ideas for Your Life’s Milestone Events

Your best friends when hosting a party are Pinterest for DIY inspiration, discount or wholesale stores and savvy sales for all your party supplies, and items you may already have in your home or a family member or friend’s home. Depending on the type of event you are hosting, check out Pinterest for ideas that you would like to incorporate into your event. Keep this in mind while you are shopping and checking what you have at home. If time allows, handmade items are usually more economical then store bought.

How to Cut Costs for Your Life’s Milestone Events

There are many ways you can cut the costs for your event without sacrificing quality. The internet allows you to send evites through email or even on Facebook. You can also call or text people to let them know about an event. Formality is no longer a requirement for today’s milestone events!

Food can be a budget breaker. In this case, it is always a good idea to go homemade. If the event’s theme matches, you can also go potluck and ask guests to bring sides to the party. You can also provide snacks and drinks if the event is in between meal times. To cut costs on décor, you can use desserts, like cupcakes or small single layer cakes, as fun and whimsical table décor.

The most cost-effective venue is your home or a family member’s or a friend’s home, if the weather is nice, outdoors. You can also call around to small event halls in your area for cheap rates if you have many party guests. Depending on the season, fresh cut flowers are an excellent item for the décor or you can choose paper florals. Vases could be made of unique glasses bought at a dollar store and spray painted the color of your theme. Paper products of a solid color would be excellent to enhance the color scheme.

Planning Your Budget for Your Life’s Milestone Events

Now that you know what you need to plan for and how to cut costs, you need to break down the price of each thing you want and make sure the total does not exceed your budget. You may have to adjust or cut some things to get in that budget. Here is an example:

Items that you can save on cost:
  • Invitations online
  • Alternatives to cake: cupcakes and frosting, cookies, or donut towers
  • Simple appetizers and snacks: two large fruit pizzas, peanuts and mints
  • Coffee, tea, and punch
  • Paper products (plates, cups, napkins)
  • Plastic table cloth or borrowed
  • Material for games (pens and paper in your home)
  • Gifts for game winners
  • Baby things for main centerpiece and on gift table
  • Onesies for guests to decorate (Instructions available online) (different sizes for baby growing to use later)
  • Fabric paint
  • Garland material (all things baby for use later such as animals cut out of patterned paper, clothes, accessories, etc.)
  • Helium balloon arrangement for decor

These prices can even be reduced if you shop smart. The sky’s the limit when using your own imagination or getting inspiration from an event planner for creative design ideas for your life’s milestone events!

So, whether you’re hosting a family gathering, a baby shower, a brunch, or planning your own wedding, I encourage you to consider hiring an experienced, creative event planner who can help make your event come off stylish and affordable.

When your life’s milestone events come, you deserve to be able to enjoy the full experience of the events you’ve created rather than frantically running around putting out fires. The right event planner will make it stress-free for you.

Getting Creative to Make Your Event Magical

What separates a spectacular event from a mediocre one? The answer is the details. How many events have you slaved over only to have the guests sit in a corner or leave early? While you work hard at an event, sometimes there is not enough there to impress. By focusing on the details of an event, you can capture your guests’ attention and make a truly magical party.

Event Magical Detail #1: Décor

Based on the theme of the party, you should go crazy with making the décor fit the smallest detail. For example, if you are hosting a princess birthday party for your daughter, don’t simply stick to princess character balloons and paper plates. Transform your home into a princess’ castle! Leave jewels laying around the coffee table or counter. Have a gown on a mannequin in the corner. Make it spectacular!

Event Magical Detail #2: Food and Drinks

Keeping with the theme, search for the most creative recipes that fit with your event. If you are hosting a girls’ spa night in, create cucumber mini-sandwiches and green tea vodka beverages. Or, if you are throwing a Super Bowl party, go extreme with the team colors and traditional arena food. Make gourmet nachos and supreme hot dog toppings along with a new football-related mixed drink to serve.

Event Magical Detail #3: Games and Entertainment

There are some games and entertainment options that have grown old and predictable at certain parties. Guests can see the Pictionary and Cranium boards from a mile away. If you want to provide exciting entertainment, but are out of creative ideas, get on Pinterest! I love the site, and it can provide you with hundreds of fun entertainment ideas for whatever your party theme is. The closer you stick with the theme of the party, the more detail-oriented your entertainment will be.

Event Magical Detail #4: Favors

The favors are a detail where you can go all out with creativity. When the guests take the favor home, they will always remember the spectacular and creative event you put on. Depending on what the theme of the party is, you can create ultimate personalized favors for each of your guests. In the invitation, you can even ask guests to answer some questions with their RSVP for more favor options.

I am going to use the previous event examples. If you are throwing that princess birthday party, have parents ask the little guests what they think makes them a princess. Then create favors for each guest that match. For a girls’ spa night in, have each guest list their favorite aromas and craft a take-home spa basket with those fragrances. For a super bowl party, have guests send you their favorite football memory so you can replicate it in a favor. These details will always be remembered and treasured by your guests.
